A couple of weeks ago, I discovered a small bump on the surface of my skin where my leg was amputated. It had a very similar appearance to some of the tumors that I previously had on my leg, so out of concern that the cancer was already back I made an appointment with Dr. O’Keefe. At the time, he explained that for a few reasons he didn’t think that this bump was a tumor, but said to keep an eye on it. Initially I was relieved, but the bump continued to grow and I found a second much smaller bump in the same area. So I contacted Dr. O’Keefe again, and we made an appointment to take a biopsy of the bump Monday morning. The bumps were both so small that rather than take a needle biopsy, Drs. Mitten and Michalko resected them. Now starts the mental games as I wait for the pathology, which can take a few days. I set myself up for the news that it is cancer, but hope like hell that it’s not.
After my operation we followed “procedure” with lunch at Amiel’s. I really wanted to break down and have my perfected roast beef sub on white bread with swiss-american blend cheese, horseradish-mayo, lettuce, tomato, onion, sweet peppers, and a few hot peppers…probably the best sub out there. But, I resisted and stuck with turkey on whole wheat, a decent substitute.
At Autocrafting by Technistar we had an appointment to have a left foot accelerator installed in the Cross Country. As we waited in the showroom, we scoped out a sporty looking trike designed to accommodate wheelchairs. Incredible! I challenge anyone in a wheelchair to a test drive, I would love to see this thing on the road! Before installing our accelerator, I wanted to check it out and get more details. When they showed us the mounting plate that would be bolted to the floor of the car, I started to have second thoughts about modifying our baby. I backed out so I could learn more and see what else is out there.
